Miracle-Gro Azalea, Camellia & Rhododendron Continuous Release Plant Food is for ericaceous, acid-loving or lime-hating plants. It includes a temperature controlled coating which regulates the release of nutrients when the conditions are right for feeding. One application feeds plants for up to 6 months, removing the need for regular feeding.

Ericaceous plants are often referred to as lime-hating or acid-loving plants. The most commonly grown ericaceous plants are azaleas, camellias and rhododendrons. These plants thrive in a low lime environment (pH 4.5 to 5.5). If they are grown in soil where the pH is too high (alkaline), they produce poor growth, few flowers and the leaves tend to become yellowish in colour.

How to use

  1. Choose the dosage size.
  2. Soak the soil around the base.
  3. Wet the leaves with a fine rose on a watering can.
  4. Feed every two weeks from early spring to late summer.

Beds and borders, pots, containers and hanging baskets: Mix one large spoonful (15ml) in 4.5 litres of water.

Houseplants: Mix one small spoonful (1.25ml) in 1 litre of water.
